I'm about to finish a separate jail sentence in polk county. I have a year old warrant from Buchanan county for an OWI from 2016. My public defender has withdrawn council and there is no sentencing date set. How long will I be waiting in Buchanan county jail for a court date and new public defender?
If you qualify, you should receive an attorney within a few days. As for a court date, that could take weeks.
